They say that rain on your wedding day is good luck. Laurena and Spencer will have good luck for the rest of their lives together!!
The ceremony was held at Neills Creek Baptist Church on August 24th. After the ceremony, the 200 guests made their way over to the Broadslab Distillery Barn in Benson NC where I was for the reception. It’s a beautiful Barn with a huge covered front porch with rocking chairs, patio on the side, stage inside and a small balcony looking down onto the room.
As the guests arrived I had a mix of rock and country with a couple bluegrass songs for Spencer playing outside on the porch. Guests enjoyed visiting with each other, listening to music and having refreshments before planner Shanna and her helpers opened the doors for the reception. The room looked beautiful with floral arrangements by Dragonfly Florist. The guests took their seats and it was time for the introductions. I introduced the wedding party to “Can’t Stop The Feeling” and Lauren and Spencer from the balcony to “How Sweet It Is”. They came down stairs and had their first dance to “My Heaven” by Trace Adkins. The Parent s dances followed and Lauren and her Father danced to “My Little Girl”. Spencer escorted his Mother to the floor for their dance to “Don’t Blink” by Kenny Chesney. Her Father, Randall, welcomed everyone and Reverend Chris blessed the Ron’s Barn catered barbecue meal. It was sooo good!!!!!! During dinner I had more rock and country playing.
After dinner we had the toasts and a brownie cutting to “I Can’t Help Myself”. The brownies were delicious too!! I opened the floor to everyone with “The Electric Slide” and some top 40 that filled it with young and old. For the next hour and a half I played lots of 80’s, line dances, some current top 40 and a few slow songs including “Just Like You” by their family member Paige King Johnson that is just beautiful!! Thanks for sharing with me Paige!
We paused for the bouquet toss to “Juice” by Lizzo, garter removal to “Brick House” and toss to “Wild Thing”, then back to dancing. We ended with “Dancing In The Moonlight”. I can’t wait to see the pics from Brittany Cruse Photography! Thank you so much Lauren, Spencer, Joyce, Randall, Ashley and Shanna! I truly feel like I am party of the family!!
